Working with real users from the tactical world, First Tactical strives to fully understand customer demand through a circular development process: Listen, Engineer, Field Test and Deploy. First Tactical listens to its customers through regular product development sessions with real users in the field. First Tactical also ensures it engineers cutting edge product to transform common gear into incomparable tools for professionals.
I managed to get hold of one of the first of their products to come into the UK and have been subjecting the Tactix 1 Day Plus Pack to some of my very own ‘Field Testing’! Available in Black or Green, at 40.5L this is a well-sized pack that gives you more than enough space for one day’s worth of gear; in fact with careful packing if could be used for multi-day use if you’re going to be re-supplied in the field. The Tactix Pack benefits from a Lynx™ Laser Cut Platform compatible with MOLLE/PALS, First Tactical’s Hook & Hang Thru™ System, and repositionable or removable compression straps with side release buckles. There is a divided front stash pocket for longer items, concealed drop pocket with hook/loop lining for utility pouch or holster, interior dual use hook/loop and a web platform for unlimited pouch placement. There’s an innovative, removable internal backboard, with a posture-conforming aluminium stay that may be used as splint, shovel or paddle, positional shoulder straps for the right fit, HD spacer mesh with dual density foam shoulder straps and back panel, and a fleece-lined eyewear pocket.
Made from a combination of 500D/1000D Cordura, with a double-layered base and featuring YKK zips and Duraflex hardware, the pack is absolutely bomber-tough and thus far shows no signs of wear, even after use in some pretty foul weather and being thrown in the footwell of the truck on many occasions! The back panel and shoulder straps are supercomfy even under load, and as the Tactix weighs in at just 1.9kg, you’re not adding much weight to your overall load.
